Real-time tracking is one of the big topics at this year's Prolight + Sound. Performances and live demonstrations of different capturing systems can be seen at different stands. This is also the case with BlackTrax, a real-time tracking system. This tracking solution is used to track movements on a stage and allow different devices to respond. Light, sound and graphic animations are controlled by the movements of the artist and produce different effects.
Shining and not to be overlooked is the bull in hall 5.0 at the stand of the Designgroup. The special thing about it: The head was manufactured with a 3D printer.
It was one of the highlights of Prolight + Sound 2018. Daniel Kannenberg introduces the new MA Lighting console grandMA3. It was a major attraction and caused a great stir in the industry in the run-up to the trade fair.
"It's really amazing how much interest there was in the grandMA3", explains Björn Gaentzsch, Team Leader Marketing at MA Lighting. The regular presentations of the new console attracted countless interested clients and potential customers. At the booth in the Lightpower Village, the MA Lighting Team were permanently deepened in discussions. "This year's fair is a great success for us."
Admittedly, we did not have this interview situation yet either: Mads Wahlberg, CEO of Wahlberg Motion Design, takes us on a lap in the remote-controlled chair and talks about his first knife experience at the Prolight + Sound 2018.

Today the new presentation format "Immersive Technology Forum" starts. Here the visitors can learn, how they can enhance events with immersive experiences and where appropriate solutions are used in staging.
The programme, designed in collaboration with experts from the field, is aimed at content producers, technical and broadcasting specialists as well as event managers and organisers. Topics of the lecture series are: Application possibilities of 3D audio in theatres, creative application possibilities of virtual and augmented reality as well as other trend technologies in the event area or the entire workflow of a 360° music video production.
The Immersive Technology Forum will take place in Hall 4C in the Entente room and is definitely worth a visit.
